Online This Week at Two River

BLACK LIVES MATTER

LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO STOP INJUSTICE

Today and always we look to the words of August Wilson to urge us on in the endeavor for equality and human rights, and the defense of black lives. Two River Theater stands with those rising up against the unlawful killing of Black people in this country this week and all weeks. As we mobilize the resources of our theater, we ask that our family of artists and members of our community share thoughts on how we can work together to take immediate action against injustice. Contact our leadership at diasandhurst@trtc.org.
